DANTE GABRIEL ROSSETTI
English painter and poet
(1828 - 1882)

Her mouth's culled sweetness by thy kisses shed
  On cheeks and neck and eyelids, and so led
    Back to her mouth which answers there for all.
      - [Kisses]

The worst moment for the atheist is when he is really thankful and has nobody to thank.
      - [Atheism]

This sunlight shames November where he grieves
  In dead red leaves, and will not let him shun
    The day, though bough with bough be overrun.
      But with a blessing every glade receives
        High salutation.
      - Autumn Idleness [Autumn]

Like the sweet apple which reddens upon the topmost bough,
  A-top on the topmost twig--which the pluckers forgot, somehow--
    Forgot it not, nay, but got it not, for none could get it till now.
      - Beauty [Apples]

Of Adam's first wife, Lilith, it is told
  (The witch he loved before the gift of Eve)
    That ere the snakes, her sweet tongue could deceive
      And her enchanted hair was the first gold--
        And still she sits, young while the earth is old
          And, subtly of herself contemplative,
            Draws men to watch the bright net she can weave,
              Till heart and body and life are in its hold.
      - Lilith [Women]

Her voice was like the voice the stars
  Had when they sang together.
      - The Blessed Damozel (st. 10) [Voice]
